GI Korean Bill Question
Confronting Graduates

-

By PAUL LADAS
How long Korean G.I. educa-
tional benefits will continue in ef-
fect is the question confronting
June college graduates for which
no easy answer can be determined.
Public Law 550 of the 82nd Con-
gress which establishes these ben-
efits enumerates those eligible to
accept them as veterans who have
completed at least 90 days of serv-
ice within a "basic service period"
and were not discharged dishon-
orably. The number of days an eli-
gible veteran will be supported is
one-and-a-half times the days he
served in the "basic service period."
THE QUESTION is when the
"basic service period," which be-
gan June 27,1950, will be discon-
tinued. Under the law it can be
cut off either by Presidential pro-
clamation or by concurrent reso-
lution of Congress. A threat to
continuance of the law is the eco-
nomy drive waged by the present
Administration.

Sen. Charles E. Potter (R-
Mich.) and Marjorie Uren in
charge of veterans' affairs at
the University, answered that it
was impossible to speculate on
when the "cut-off" date would
occur. Mrs. Uren commented
that "all sorts of unreliable ru-
mors were circulating about this
question."
However, some important factors
which may influence any decision
are the imminence of the Korean
War and the possibility of involve-
ment in the Indo-China crisis.
Since the law was especially de-
signed to apply to war veterans,
these points will be carefully con-
sidered.
Atpresent approximately 900
University students are receiving
benefits which consist of $110 for
persons with no dependents, and
$135 and $160 respectively to those
with one or more than one de-
pendent.

Daily-Dean Morton
MRS. MILLER LEADS GROUP IN PRACTICE

By MARGE PIERCY
"Any kind of learning that aims
to make children show off, to be
cute and vulgar, is wrong," Ger-
aldine Miller of the women's phy-
sical education department said
yesterday.
The instructor of children's mo-
dern dance classes, whose pupils
range in age from five-year-olds
to teenagers, explained that her
goal is not to turn out professional
dancers but to develop good muscle

coordination, imagination and the
love of creative experience.
* * *
"ABOUT THE age of seven," she
remarked, "children begin tighten-
ing up and become inhibited. They
are stiffer and afraid to express
themselves in movement."
Urging the inclusion of mo-
dern dance in educational pro-
grams, Mrs. Miller said, "danc-
ing should be a part of the school
system, not just the frosting that

Winchell ' Men Protest Future
Loss of Dinner Companions

By HARRY STRAUSS
Men of Winchell House are'
threatening a revolt against the
West Quad Council.
The two factions are fighting
over women and a dining hall.
*. * *
TROUBLE began Friday with
announcement that under a new
rotating system, Chicago House
women will take their meals with
different houses in future weeks.
Since Chicago House was turned
over to women students in the
fall they have eaten in the Win-
chell dining hall.
Film Tours
11 1Vn
To'Be Given
The first in a series of Sunday
night film tours of foreign coun-
tries will be held from 7 30 to 8:30
p.m. today at the International
Center.
Tonight's presentation features
four short films on India: "Bom-
bay," a movie commentary on In-
dian minorities; "Music in India,"
and a film study of an Indian
dance, "Bharata Natyan."
The regular weekly feature is
open to the public free of charge.
SL Cinema Guild
Starring James Mason, "Five
Fingers" will be shown at 8 p.m.
today in Architecture Auditorium
as the Student Legislature Cine-
ma Guild feature.
Set in Istanbul, Turkey, the film
concerns the antics of a valet turn-
ed spy.
Price of admission is 50 cents.

The beginning of the new se-,
mester stirred demands for the
privilege of dining with the Chi-
cagoans.
When notice of the plan first
appeared on doors in the quad
violent protests were heard from
Winchell men, who did not relish
the idea of being put out of their
dining hall.
* *. *
BY LUNCHTIME Friday, a let-
ter appeared, on the Winchell din-
ing room door warning Winchel-
lites of the danger in majority
action without minority consent.
Signed "The Winchell Pat-
riot," the notice asked residents
to resist the action by eating in
their hall as usual tomorrow,
and if this did not work, to
secede from the quad.
A Winchell council-of-war is be-
ing called today to see what can
be done about what one resident
termed, "gross injustice."
A second notice appeared dur-
ing Friday's dinner hour appeal-
ing to the women in question, re-
minding them that they are free
Americans who should not allow
themselves to be moved around
"like a harem."
Interfaith Award

have been presented to Winona
Grosse, '56SN, and Betsy Brown,

nold Schiff Award of $100.

privileged children get on week-
ends.".
Particularly enthusiastic about
her all-boy class, Mrs. Miller feels
that it is as important for boys to
dance as it is for girls.
"There is a stigma about being
a sissy because of dancing that
needs to be wiped out," she elabor-
ated.
. * *
"ONCE THE children get over
the feeling that they're dancing,
they let themselves go energetical-
ly. It's a shame boys aren't encour-
aged to go in for dancing as they
are for athletics," she continued.
Mrs. Miller, who has been with
the University four years, ori-
ginated her clases under spon-
sorship of Arts Theater. When it
closed, the city board of recrea-
tion took over the sponsor's job
at the request of interested mo-
thers.
Five is about the best age to
start the children, Mrs. Miller has
found. While the children can do
a lot before then, they do it by
themselves, as most children dance
to music on the radio or televi-
sion, she said.

Day of Prayer sponsored by the
